Penang Clan Jetty
by Winnie Tjahjana - 5 years, 8 months ago
Earlier this year (April 2013) I got a chance to go on my first real backpacking experience. Although I only stay in Penang for 3 days and in Malaysia for a week in total. It was my very first time surviving with only cabin sized backpack.
During my stay in the east side of Penang Island, I got a chance to visit the famous “jetty”. Which are group of houses located above some kind of dock that extends to the ocean. Other than few renters, mainly the ‘jetty’ are mostly populated by malaysian of chinese decent, and they are mostly grouped in different ‘jetty’ based on their family name.
